Weight Watcher's Garden Vegetable Soup

Weight Watcher's Garden Vegetable Soup
Makes 6 Servings

1/2 cup carrots, sliced
1/4 cup onions, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fat free chicken broth
1 cup green cabbage, diced
1 cup spinach, chopped
1 TBS tomato paste
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup zucchini, diced

I also like to add 1/2 cup bok choy, diced and 1/2 cup celery, diced.

Spray a large saucepan with nonstick cooking spray, heat.  Saute' the carrot, onion, garlic, and celery over low heat until softened, about 5 minutes.  Add broth, cabbage, spinach, bok choy, tomato paste, basil, oregano, and salt, bring to a boil.  Reduce heat, simmer, covered, about 15 minutes.  Stir in the zucchini, and cook 3-4 minutes more.  Serve hot.

1 Serving = 0 WW Points Plus / 2 Servings = 1 WW Points Plus

Here's some pointers on Bok Choy.  If you're like me then the first time I read about Bok Choy and all the vitamins it has - I wanted to use it but didn't know how.  So, to learn I always head over to Youtube.  I found these awesome videos.  I'm so glad there are people willing to share.  The first video shows you how to clean and prepare it and the second video shows you how to cut it.  It is soooooo easy!!!  To read about the nutritional benefits of Bok Choy head over to
